CB3-111 "flickering" black screen when display off

hc803hc803 Posts: 4Member New User
Noticed for some time now that when my screen goes black from inactivity, I can see it "flashing" or "flickering" between different shades of black.  Have tried different levels of brightness but the symptom continues.  Currently on Version 75.0.3770.129 (official).  Hardware issue?

    Hi, kindly try to do hard reset in the unit and check by following the below steps.

    Hard reset your Chromebook 
    1.    Press the power button to turn off your Chromebook until all the lights in the unit goes off and unplug all the cables if in case any cable is plugged in.
    2.    Press and hold the Refresh (the 4th key in the first row of the keyboard) + Power key for 20 secs. then try to turn on the unit and check.

    Hit 'Accept' if you find the answer helpful!

    Tried the hard reset, no change.  It's not detrimental to my use of the Chromebook, so I'll just live with it.
